River's Rock

River's Rock

What’s so special about a rock? They’re all kind of dull and hard, so why should you care? Many of the rocks at Eno have a volcanic story to how they were made, and we can learn a lot about the history of the park just by looking at what types of rocks formed.  Come join the naturalist on a hike through the park to discover just how different each dull, hard rock can be.
     Children must be accompanied by an adult.
     Bring good hiking shoes and drinking water.
